Pot Belly bears were a popular stuffed animal toy for children and collectors produced by the Daekor company in the 1980s. The “Pot Belly” comes from the protruding belly that each animal has. The “Pot Belly Bear for President” button was included with some bears that were produced during the election season. While mostly known for producing bears, Daekor also produced other animals with pot bellies such as raccoons and koalas.
